If you have ever watched the Fox News Channel or the Sean Hannity Show, you would be familiar with a man who is a constant contributor to the network. Sheriff David Clarke is a serious, highly decorated officer of the law who loves America and wants our country to be successful and safe.
David Clarke grew up in a home with a strong family unit and a father who had been in the military and believed in law and order. His father also instilled in him the respect of the law and the police officers who work to keep it. Sheriff Clarke talks about his life from his first years as a cop “on the beat” and his continuing conservative views and defense of police officers and their actions. He also talks about his successful work as the head of a prison, but I specifically enjoyed reading the chapter entitled, “American education embraces and enforces poverty “. As a retired educator, I found his discussion of charter schools and regular public schools to be very interesting. This book also includes stories of race issues in the United States and a variety of other opinions of the author about lawmakers and lawbreakers. I really like Sheriff Clarke and the things that he believes in. I think this book is an excellent example of a conservative, black officer trying to let America know about the truth that he feels has been hidden in the racial divide.
Cop Under Fire by David Clarke will be available March 7, 2017 from Worthy Publishing. An egalley of this book was made available by the publisher in exchange for a honest review.
